    2011 silverado 4.8 thoughts

    Ya typo. I have no issues with the 4L60E. It’s decent for what it is. Just change the fluid often in it.

    2011 silverado 4.8 thoughts

    My 2010 has the 4.8. Its been great. Mine has the trailer towing package. It gives you the upgraded suspension, LT 245 70R17's, and trans cooler. 3.42 gears. I've pulled 5000 pounds without issues. Leave it out of 4th when pulling and she pulls great. I've owned it since new. I'm just about to...

    Best filter choices for GM 4.8/5.3 in dusty conditions

    It’s probably the o ring in the pickup tube that’s shot. My 4.8 ticked and now is quiet. It’s so quiet it creeps me out. I was used to the way the engine had sound, now it’s crazy quiet. Go on YouTube. Lots of people have this issue. Some more extreme than others. Yours is probably just starting...

    08 Silverado 4.8 horrible accelration/MPG Stumped ??

    4.8 is no drag racer. GM torque management is ridiculous. I can barely chirp a tire. The only issues Ive had with the engine is an oil pan gasket leak and lower rad hose. I cant complain. Again, the 4.8 never had AFM. It did get VVT which my 2010 has.

    I had to drop the front diff. It’s not a horrible job. Takes time though.

    Google LY2 and learn about it. It never had active fuel management. No 4.8 did.

    4.8 never had AFM. Remove the tune and go back to factory settings. If that doesn’t work, then Probably replace both upstream O2 sensors.

    Buying used transmission

    I would rebuild yours vs buying some unknown trans from a junk yard. My mustang trans is getting tired and that is my plan.

    One thing that might cause you issues is the o ring on the oil pickup tube is leaking. It will lower the output of the oil pump. I just changed mine out when I did the oil pan gasket.

    The filter is installed vertically. Oil doesn’t drain out.
